Well I got a little bored today so I decided to finally paint my engine covers and figured I post pics. All I used was SBM color matched paint in a can. I think it came out pretty good for a can job.

A little OT, but does that STB not rub on the motor?

I got the same one and complained to the seller. He said maybe it was a bad one and I can re-send it to him at my own cost and if he deems it to be a manufacturing defect, then I would receive a refund. So he would have been like "no it wasn't a manufacturing defect, you don't get your $ back". So I said, F that I guess I will keep it. Now it sits in my extra room colecting dust.



EDIT: aaaah sheeeit, I just noticed who it was. +rep for the altys haha

Gotta give rep around before giving you some again. Till next time

How's the car running man?!

may rub because of how its installed. i know for the JIC strut bars you have to install the inner bolts (closest to the engine) on the tower first then the outers.

Thanks for all the rep guys. Yes I did apply a clear coat that was provided with the paint I bought. I'm not sure off the top of my head the name of the site but I'll look it up a bit later. I do plan on doing the other covers I'm just waiting for the temp to get a warmer.

nice job Jason. hows the car runnin?


The car is running very strong! I havent really driven it to much since I got it back in mid October. I only drove it until Thanksgiving and then put it away. I had it out last tuesday since it was 60 degrees here and it was running near perfect.
